Reviews - What do customers think about Gracie Goat's Big Bike Race (Barnsville Sports Squad)?
Gracie Goat a Big Winner with Our Little Girl! Dec 27, 2007
We initially found this book in one of my husband's cycling catalogs and thought it was cute. We went ahead and ordered it and it has turned out to be a big hit with our 2-year-old daughter. It is also very educational in terms of using real cycling terms and teaching the kids that winning is not always everything. Highly recommended!
Lucy's review Aug 15, 2007
I thought it was very good. I like the animals. And I think Gracie is a bit like me. And I liked that Grandma was scared to get her ears pierced. Lucy - 7 (with her Dad's permission)
Not A CYCLIST BUT INSPIRED Jul 26, 2007
This book is a wonderful story that provides a positive message to children. If you try hard you can accomplish anything. The author applies some of her personal experiences that children can relate to in today's society. I hope to see more from this author. My neice loved it. I recommend this book for ages 5 and up.
